dorner's truck was found here last thursday. a smoldering wreck. but no body inside. police said they found tracks leading away from the car, but no suspect. they is searched through the night. >> they still aerial searches, ground searches and door to door searches going on. >> reporter: the former cop is seeking revenge a motive spelled out in a manifesto posted online. a rant against a police department he says blamed him for exposing abuse. i will utilize every bit of small-arms training that i have been given, he writes. you have misjudged a sleeping giant. >> of course, he knows what he's doing. we trained him. he was a member of the armed forces. it's extremely worrisome and scary. >> reporter: late thursday, cnn's anderson cooper said that he found a package that dorner
7:02 am
sent him february 1st with a coin that had been shot through. inside, dorner said that more evidence that he was railroaded by police in 2006. fired, he said, by a police department protecting his own. the chief at the time was bill bratten. >> he would have been fired by him. >> reporter: police said that dorner has led them on a wild goose chase through three states and mexico and they still have no idea where he to find him. >> we ask that anyone who sees him should not approach or attempt to account him but immediately call 911. >> reporter: police say this may be the biggest man hunt southern california has ever seen. cops searching for an alleged cop killer, someone they fear may be hunting him. george? >> okay, david, thanks. let's get more behind all
7:03 am
this. clifrts dorner posted 1,000-word manifesto online. pierre thomas has more on that. >> reporter: good morning, george. authorities said that christopher dorner is their worst nightmare. dorner a former navy reservist is an expert maxman. he claims to have explosives and a rifle capable of slicing through armored cars from long distance. >> you have a trained member of the military who's taking that experience and terrorizing this entire region. >> by all accounts, the 33-year-old led a normal life. >> was always smiling. always positive and upbeat. the kind of person that yo would want as a friend. >> reporter: dorner joined the military and later the police out of a sense of honor.
7:04 am
investigators believe behind the smile is a burning hatred for the lapd which he called corrupt and racist. his battle began with 2006 shortly after he became a cop, when he says that he witnessed a female officer using excessive force. for years he appealed the decisions. sources say that he recently snapped after exhausting all avenues to get his good name back. >> you're always on duty when you're a cop. >> reporter: she's dorner's former girlfriend. >> it's scary situation. i have the phone on 911 when i open the door to my apartment. who's next? you don't know. i don't see a peaceful resolve or ending in the situation because he committed so many heinous acts at this point.
7:05 am
>> reporter: dorner said that he's going to use every bit of his training to kill police, he said that he's prepared to die and george, my sources say, believe him. >> reporter: brad garrett joins us now from washington. we learned so much. we know that the car is in the ravine, some tracks there. but this is like finding a needle in a haystack at this point. >> it is, george. hopefully, they have tracking dogs out there immediately. the key is, what is dorner going to do? did he have any plan to go to big bear? a place that he's been in the past? the key is, getting the word out in big bear to all of the stores, rental car places, any place that he could conceivable go to get food or rent a vehicle or obviously steal a vehicle, that's the reel key.
7:06 am
is he using credit cards? i don't know. another way to track, possibly. now we're into almost 20 hours later. he could be anywhere. >> we just heard from his former girlfriend that he believes that this is going to end with violence and we have seen that manifesto, what clues do you take from that? >> george, he says in the manifesto, unfortunately, he won't be here for his name to be clear. george, this is all about him stating, look, i'm the good guy, i have done the right thing. you all, meaning you all who have touched my life, have harmed my name. until he believes that he eens cleansed that, this is going to go on. >> okay, brad garrett, thanks very much. >> take a look at ginger zee on
7:07 am
top of a mountain of salt up in boston. two to three feet of snow expected there. sam, first, give us all the latest on this storm. >> we might as well pull out the "b" word, blizzard, for this one. because it's the very worst that a winter storm can deliver and seven states from blizzard warnings out now. anywhere from newark to new york city, all the way through hartford in connecticut, to boston, massachusetts, up to portland, maine. this entire area is going to get the driving, blinding snow, the kind of snow that shuts down cities. this is kind of a big hit for this area. it really comes together with two storms. one storm that's already delivered a hit of snow. north of the chicagoland area, about ten inches of snow. you didn't have to get too far to get that snow there. and in central detroit. not detroit, but central michigan. they picked up about ten inches of snow. that's got the cold air. as that system drives up to the
7:08 am
north, they really do get together and phase right about 2:00, 3:00 in the morning, that system will pull itself together to become one, big snowmaker off the coast of new york and connecticut and massachusetts and boston, to make that big, big storm happen. who gets what? if you're south of the center of this storm you get rain. that's the d.c. area. right along the coastal areas, where you see this flashing red, we have a hurricane-force wind warning out there. the coastal flooding in areas that were devastated by sandy, you get a real impact from the water. you'll get big impact from the snowfall totals. 24 inches of snow is the biggest total we can find. that's in boston. boston has never had more than 27.5 inches at snow at one time. our ginger zee is on that mountain of salt, getting ready for that storm. ginger, good morning. >> good morning, sam. this time tomorrow, i anticipate standing close to three-foot to
7:09 am
five-foot drifts of snow here in boston. but for now, i'm standing, yes, on top of a lot of salt. this is 100,000 tons of it. you see 50-foot cliffs. it is just one of the things that's going to help boston and all of new england prepare for this major winter storm. this is the reason why many schools are closed today in new england. an overturned school bus on a snowy road in michigan. fortunately, only two students suffered minor injuries. it's all part of that storm will become the nor'easter. after superstorm sandy, no one is taking this storm lightly. >> accumulation is expected to be swift, heavy and dangerous. >> reporter: more than 2,500 flights have been canceled. logan airport and amtrak between new york and boston is shutting down early this afternoon. and cities all over the region is suspending public transportation. >> stay off the streets of our city. >> basically, stay home. >> reporter: the run on gas. >> there's several gas stations up the road out of gas. >> reporter: and supplies ahead
7:10 am
of the storm is so intense, the fire department was called into this salem, massachusetts, supermarket. >> well, i might as well double-stock. we don't have to go out. we can hunker down. >> there's been a constant stream, let me show you, of all of the trucks getting prepared for the big storm. boston, getting another 60 tons -- 60,000 tons to this company alone. and they'll be ready when it hits. sam? >> best to be ready. here comes bernie rayno, and my pal. no one knows this stuff better than anyone. phasing of two systems, is this going to happen? is it not going to happen? what's the factor that we wake up with no snow? >> well, i don't think there's any way out of this storm now, sam. you had mentioned the two storms. one in the midwest and one in the southeast. but, just as important was an injection of arctic air that came across northern new england yesterday. and that's why it was so cold in new york city. so, now, you have the arctic air. now, you have two storms. all the ingredients are there, sam. the only place they may get
7:11 am
missed is if the storm is a little too far east. maybe new york city doesn't get a foot of snow. but i they southern new england in this red area, batten down the hatches. it's coming down. >> historic storm? are we going to be talking about this, even though the totals aren't 30 inches of snow? >> i think it's going to be historic because when you combine the heavy snow we're going to see. and at the height of the storm tonight, sam, even around new york city, providence, hartford, all in this red area, we're going to see snowfall rates, of one to three inches per hour, visibility, below a quarter-mile. there's probably going to be whiteouts because of the wind blowing between 40 miles per hour and 60 miles per hour. that's what makes it historic >> that's going to be bad in this area. amy, we're on the system all morning long so people won't be surprised. thank you, bernie. let's get more on the man josh. personal information and
7:12 am
communications with the bush family including former president george bush and his father. even the security code to the house has been compromised. jonathan karl joins us now to explain who did this and how. >> reporter: good morning john josh, this is quite the story. it's now investigating the apparent hack of e-mail accounts of both former presidents. this done by someone going by aalias guccifer. e-mails going back to 2009. have already posted several personal photos including one of the elder bush in the hospital. abc news won't reveal the hacked information. the story was first reported by the website smoking gun. this morning, a spokesman confirms to abc news, quote,
7:13 am

7:15 am
david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this birthday party was held at a local church with little ethan, his mother and older brother. pops, grandad, also there. the s.w.a.t. teams, the fbi, the negotiators hugging him at the party. ethan's family telling me he's not spoken of the bunker or the man who held him captive. but as you'll see right here this morning, his giant smile is back. >> buddy, why don't you play with your cars. >> okay. >> reporter: this morning, an abc news exclusive, the first home movies of little ethan. and images from his sixth birthday party. the party his town had all been praying for. just days before he turned 6, ethan was snatched from the front seat of that school bus, dragged to an underground bunker by jimmy lee dykes. >> the child appears physically unharmed and is being treated at a local hospital. the subject is deceased. >> reporter: in his first interview, ethan's brother telling me about the text
7:16 am
messages the family would get from the hostage negotiators. the messages that would keep the family going. >> we didn't know when, at times, that he was asleep. and that was around 9:00 at night. >> reporter: they would at least be able to tell you he's gone to bed for the night? >> yes. we'd normally get a text or something that he had fallen asleep. >> reporter: was that at least some comfort? >> that was actually a lot of comfort, where i could go lay my head down. >> reporter: ethan's older brother never left their mother's side. you were there when she got the call? >> we were all there when they told us. >> reporter: what did say they? >> they said, we have ethan. >> reporter: and the fbi's special agent, whose call it was to enter the bunker, says the suspect left behind writings. and that while in the bunker, he became agitated, bragging of his plan. >> at the end of the day, the responsibility was mine. i thought the child was going to die. >> reporter: chilling words from that special agent with the fbi. he told me they were convinced time was running out.
7:17 am
they had to get ethan out. tonight on "20/20," what it was they saw and heard that that bunker that signaled dykes was about to harm ethan. what we never knew. the fbi revealing to me, that the gunman's only friend in that town, the sole friend that reached out to him, the bus driver he targeted that afternoon. >> oh, my goodness. >> david, thanks very much. let's get the rest of the weather from sam. hey, sam. >> good morning. i want to show you the big, wet -- take a look on the jacket there. the big, wet snowflakes that are falling right here in times square. that's a little earlier than planned. the crowd's out. let's take a look at the radar. we'll show you what's going on this morning. as the southern system as all of the rain, moves into the cold air and gets the infusion of the powerful jetstream. and the northern storm. we have a snowmaker. look at the wind profile that comes with this system, as well. just a quick look and you'll see the coastal winds will be 40, 50, 60 miles per hour. 70-mile-per-hour hurricane-force wind gusts just offshore.

together. we'll show you what it looks like in times square. we expected it to first come in and go to a wet mix. and it stayed at big, wet snowflakes instead. here's what we think everybody's going to get out of this storm system as the two lows get together. when you're away from the low and in that big bucket of rain, you're getting all-rain. but when that moisture gets into the colder air, and this thing puts itself together later on tonight, there's a coastal wind that's 60 or 70 miles per hour in gusts. steady winds at 40 miles per hour or 50 miles per hour. that's well past blizzard criteria of steady snow and 30-mile-per-hour winds for at least three hours. we think we have five or six hours of steady wind and snow. and those totals will be a foot and maybe more in a lot of locations. that's the way it looks right now. george? amy? we're going to turn to the trial that begins today in montana, where a star college athlete is accused of sexually assaulting a young woman he met at a party. but this dramatic case may be one part of a disturbing pattern at the university of montana that's shaking up the ncaa.

7:32 am
brought them back to her house and they started kissing. what happened next is fiercely contested. he said they had consensual sex. but johnson's accuser texted a friend saying, i think i just have gotten raped. i said no. but he wouldn't listen. in a different text, she wrote, i don't think he did anything wrong. a month and a half after the encounter, she formally reported it to authorities. >> he was the star. he was the face of the team. regardless of the status, people want to know what happened. >> reporter: around the same time, the u.s. department of justice announced a probe into a staggering 80 reports of sexual assaults in missoula over a 4-year period. >> the purpose of our investigation is to determine whether the university and the law enforcement agencies acted promptly, adequately and fairly to protect the safety of women. already the u.s. department of
